    LEGISLATIVE TIP: They Do The Work

    You’re probably thinking, “I want to propose a bill, but I can’t write it because of all the jargon that the bill requires.” Don’t worry! Sit down with a legislator who is willing to support your idea, give them a draft. The legislator will be able to give the draft to a group of researchers or legislative councils — all legislators have groups like this. This group has lawyers who will write the bill and research for no conflicts or changes in laws. When they complete the draft, they will hand it off to the legislator — but this part is important, make sure you get the chance to review…

    Boom! National Park Service Ranger Explains Constitution, Bill of Rights

    Today’s society, we tend to laugh. We tend to joke. We kind of get to poke fun at our government. What gets done. What doesn’t get done. Try doing it for the very first time. Try doing it for the very first time. Because that’s exactly what these men are doing. They are flying by the seat of their pants. No one knew if it would work. No one knew how long it would work. If it didn’t work, whose job was it to fix it? What these men put on paper still govern this country today. Could they have address every issue during the Constitutional Convention? No. But, they…

    Leaders in Machine Pistols: the Beistigui Hermanos MM31

    Hi guys, thanks for tuning in to another video on ForgottenWeapons.com. I’m Ian McCollum, and I am here today at the James D. Julia auction house up in Maine, taking a look at some of the guns they’re going to be selling in their fall of 2017 firearms auction. What we have here looks a lot like one of those cool Mauser Schnellfeuer pistols. And you know what, that is actually exactly what the manufacturer wanted you to think. This is in fact an MM31, a Modelo Militar 31, manufactured by Beistigui Hermanos in Spain. And in fact Beistigui Hermanos was the first company to make a selective fire basically…

    Ivanka Trump & Marco Rubio Team Up To Draft Amazingly Awful Legislation

    According to reports, Ivanka Trump, a woman who knows absolutely nothing whatsoever about American policy is teaming up with Marco Rubio, a guy who probably also knows very little about American policy, to come up with a paid parental leave plan that can then be enacted on the federal level. Now on the surface that actually looks like a good thing, in spite of the fact that we have two of the dumbest people in DC working on it, you know? We need paid parental leave, guaranteed paid parental leave in the United States. So, what’s the problem with these two working together? Well, the problem is the fact that…

    #TipTuesday: Legislative Tip: Ask What Their Intentions Are

    If you see a bill that you’re not sure if it is a good or bad bill, you can always contact the NAD or the person who wrote the bill. Sit down with them and ask what their intentions are. What’s your intention for writing this bill? Sometimes, they will be more than willing to explain because they are familiar with it. Maybe you can add to the bill, and expand on deaf related topics. Maybe they will realize that they did not think this through, that they did not realize how this would impact the deaf community. Reach out to them or contact the NAD!

    Homework Hotline: New York State Government: Legislative Branch

    (Narration) The Legislature is the lawmaking branch of our state government. It is a bicameral branch of government which means it has two houses: the Senate and the Assembly. Members of both the Senate and Assembly are known as legislators and they have the same basic duty, to represent the people of New York and pass laws. New York is a large, diverse state with millions of people and places, all of which have different things to offer and different needs to fulfill. This makes representing everyone a big job that could never be done by just one person. The people that the legislators represent are called their constituents. Each…

    Do Most Addicts And Alcoholics Recover? | How Families Play A Key Role In Addiction Recovery

    (heartfelt music) – Do addicts recover? Of course they do. You know, addiction actually has a high recovery rate in the grand scheme of things, despite people saying it doesn’t. Providing they go to the right type of treatment, they surrender to the process, they become humble and they learn how to live a life that is better than a life they had with drugs and alcohol. And people that don’t recover most often don’t because they are in the program for the wrong reasons. They go to rehab for the wrong reasons. They go for somebody else or they think they’re that heavy drinker or drug user that can…
